Is Sedation Freely Available?
26th August 2016

Hello, I have a cracked back tooth and I am in a lot of pain. I also have a HUGE phobia of the needles used and to a lesser part the pain in general, is sedation freely available? I just need some help and for someone to let me know. Thank you.

A. Needle phobia can be a very real barrier to getting the treatment you need. IV Sedation is available, but that requires having a needle in your arm first, although lots of people can do 'in the arm' but not in the mouth.  You need to google Dentist/IV sedation/your area/your county to see where you might find this service. Hope this helps, Jenny.
